Is there anyone out there who is athletic and has had the Smith & Nephew knee replacement in their body for at least one year? I am in my mid-forties and am an avid downhill skier (somewhat aggressive), runner, cyclist and snowboarder. A knee replacement is in my future, per my ortho. surgeon, and I wanted to get some reliable feedback on how well this 'knee' performs and what its limitations are.

Many thanks!

I KNOW THE HIP REPLACEMENT IS VERY SUCCESSFUL BASED ON A FEW PEOPLE I KNOW WHO'VE HAD IT AND THERE'S ONE VIDEO ON THIS SITE IF YOU HIT THE VIDEOS TO YOUR LEFT, YOU'LL SEE THE YOUNG WOMAN WHO'S HAD THE HIP DONE. I KNOW ONE GUY WHO HAD HIS KNEE DONE 2 YRS AGO AND HE'S STILL IN PAIN AND HAS GONE TO A CANE, HE'S ABOUT 65. YOU'D HAVE TO INVESTIGATE MORE SO YOU'E PUT IT OUT THERE, THAT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO. GOOD LUCK. DELIA
